Renewable energy sources offer a sustainable solution to meet the energy needs of the future. To overcome the intermittency of solar and wind we are focusing on strategies to address energy storage and conversion using batteries, fuel cells, and electrolyzers in transformative ways.
Addressing the Global Energy Crisis
The Columbia Electrochemical Energy Center (CEEC) is using a multiscale approach to discover groundbreaking technology and accelerate commercialization. CEEC joins together faculty and researchers from across the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences who study electrochemical energy with interests ranging from electrons to devices to systems. Our industry partnerships enable the realization of breakthroughs in electrochemical energy storage and conversion.
The Esposito research group at Columbia University has a postdoc opening involving research and development of electrolyzers for simultaneous water treatment and co-generation of hydrogen.
The Columbia Engineering Electrochemical Energy Center aims to address climate change through the development of electrochemical methods that enable large-scale deployment of renewable electricity generation and electric vehicles as well as exploiting abundant renewable electricity sources for clean production of chemicals and fuels.
